FIVE artists have brought their different disciplines together to explore the rise of instructional and educational culture in the Fre-|mantle Art Centre’s new exhibition Didactic Tools.

Kynan Tan, Sam Fox, Tarsh Bates, Keg de Souza and Jake Oorloff look at the impact of YouTube tutorials, TEDx, digital whistleblowing and new political movements through performance, visual art, sound and media work.

The artists used collective research, sharing tools and experiments in peer-to-peer education to draw connections between the cultures in which digital teaching and learning are now popular.

Perth company Hydra Poesis organised the project.

Didactic Tools is at the Fremantle Arts Centre until January 24.
